Opt Subject: PRI #376: Incorrect Character Names
In section 5.1, in the description of Break After, under the subhead ‘Historic Word Separators’, U+16EB and U+16EC are referred to as RUNIC SINGLE DOT PUNCTUATION and RUNIC DOUBLE DOT PUNCTUATION respectively, but the names of those characters don’t actually include the word ‘dot’. In the same section, U+2E2D is called FIVE DOT PUNCTUATION, but its real name is FIVE DOT MARK. In the same section under the subhead ‘Other Terminating Punctuation’, U+2E17 is called OBLIQUE DOUBLE HYPHEN, but its name is DOUBLE OBLIQUE HYPHEN. In the description of Prefix Numeric, U+00B1 is called PLUS-MINUS, but its name is PLUS-MINUS SIGN. In the same section U+2213 is called MINUS-OR-PLUS-SIGN, but its name is MINUS-OR-PLUS SIGN without the last hyphen-minus. There are three instances throughout the document of the abbreviation NBHY being used for the character NON-BREAKING HYPHEN, but that character doesn’t actually have any formal aliases. Since the text also contains many actual formal aliases of other characters, maybe some difference in formatting could be introduced as to not imply that NBHY is a stable identifier. These are just the mistakes I spotted at first glance. I haven’t checked every single character name for correctness, so there may still be some mistakes.
